[SCOTTSDALE, AZ – October 6, 2020] PTI Security Systems, the global leader in access control technologies for the self-storage industry, announced today their Major Partnership with the Self-Storage Association of Australasia (SSAA). The partnership reflects PTI’s support of SSAA’s mission and expands on its participation as the exclusive Major Partner for the Access Control and Security category.
"This partnership comes as PTI Security Systems elevates its commitment to the Australasia self-storage operators and the SSAA that supports them. PTI is honored to be the most trusted Access Control and Security provider in the Australasian market,” said Thomas Brooks, Managing Director of PTI Security Systems. “We are grateful to have the support and confidence of the self-storage operators and the expert installers entrusted to deliver their solutions. Our partnership with the SSAA is demonstration of our commitment to the success of every operator across the region, and we look forward to a very active future."
The Self-Storage Association of Australasia has grown to represent nearly 1,500 facilities across Australia and New Zealand since its foundation in 1990. As the preeminent industry body for self-storage in Australasia, the SSAA strives to provide its members with the highest quality services, events, and insights that empower them to build successful businesses.
“The SSAA thanks PTI Security Systems for their support throughout the years as a trusted supplier to the industry and being actively involved with the Association. Security is a critical requirement in this industry, and our partnership with PTI Security Systems provides an avenue for collaborative support, quality and improvement and place SSAA members on the best path towards a successful business. We welcome the opportunity to further engage with PTI in promoting educational opportunities and support for SSAA members through industry events, publications, and research.”
With a proven track record of over forty years of experience in self-storage and 25 years in Australasia, PTI’s partnership expansion comes at an opportune time with the growing demand for self-storage centers in the region. In the last five years, the Australasia self-storage market has skyrocketed due to increasing urbanization in major cities, population growth, and the expansion of online retailing (IBISWorld, 2020). ‘The self-storage sector in Australasia continues to generate investment interest from both institutional and private investors, as interest grows in alternative asset classes and returns compare favourably to traditional real estate offerings (SSAA State of the Industry 2020).’
"This market is a key focus in PTI’s global plans,” added Thomas Brooks. “The partnership with SSAA is very exciting for PTI and aligns well with our commitment to support access-control and security education and development in the global emerging markets. Our goal is to increase our engagement with operators across Australasia and bring them innovative access control solutions for the decade ahead
